(ORDO NEWS) — If most people value funny and funny friends, then 17-year-old Billy Hodgson is forced to avoid them, because after talking with them she often ends up in the hospital.
The girl lives with a very rare disorder – cataplexy. This is sudden and uncontrolled muscle paralysis. As soon as Billy experiences strong emotions or laughs, she immediately faints. The girl so far has found only one way to deal with the problem: she goes around the tenth road of her cheerful friends, who, with their sparkling humor, make her laugh all the time.
Billy is a cheerful open nature, so she still can not accept what she needs to be fenced off from the same people. A girl cannot remain herself until the end.
The disease first appeared at the age of 14 at school. Since then, she carefully selects companies for communication, and also constantly strains when talking with strangers. The girl is not able to control the body. The situation is aggravated by the fact that she is conscious; she analyzes everything.
There is no cure for cataplexy. Pharmacies only sell drugs that work on certain irritants. Billy and her family have come to terms with the idea that they will have to restrain their laughter all their lives. British friends try not to joke, they are understanding. If someone joked, he immediately tries to shut up. From the sharp silence, Billy only gets funnier. Often such moments become a topic for jokes. Fortunately, the girl copes with her emotions. Putting up with a problem is sometimes very difficult, but a teenager tries not to lose a positive attitude.
